Wonderful flavour and aroma
Twinings Earl Grey is my idea of the greatest cuppa. Any other make just doesn't come up to Twinings standards for Earl Grey, though many try! This is China tea which is flavoured with oil of Bergamot. This gives it that lovely rich taste and aroma only known to Earl Grey tea. It is a light, pale, golden tea, ideal for drinking at any time of day.
This is a quote from The Sixth Earl Grey:
"Twinings has been blending my family tea for many years. Legend has it, that my ancestor, The Second Earl Grey, was presented with this exquisite recipe by an envoy on his return from China. Generations of my family have enjoyed Earl Grey tea and, today, I am proud to continue this tradition with the tea celebrated throughout the world known as Twinings Earl Grey Tea."
As with all teas, Twinings Earl Grey should be brewed for 3-5 minutes for best taste. It can be drunk black with a slice of lemon or white with milk. I have mine with milk and sweeten it a little. Lovely cuppa tea!
